A Native American Tribe Just Panicked and Burned All Its Weed
There are plenty of good (even great) ways to burn weed—the best being as you inhale the crop into your lungs. But then there are also some pretty bad ways to burn it. On Saturday, Flandreau Santee Sioux, an American Indian tribe in South Dakota, burned all of their marijuana, but not by smoking it.
The tribe had hoped to open the nation's first "marijuana resort," which is a pretty cool idea that they believed could bring in upwards of $2 million a month in profit. According to the Associated Press, the tribe leaders had been in talks with federal authorities about the legality of their venture for the past three weeks, but after the government presented some concerns—primarily, whether or not the tribe would be allowed to sell weed to non-Indians—and hinted at a potential raid, the tribe got a little scared.
